Easy Tamarind Eggplant (Aubergine)

This is the simplest way to make a very tasty eggplant dish. It's my take on a recommendation from a friend. You can use the small eggplants with slits in them for a prettier presentation.

Unremarkable. Maybe it needs salt? Nice vegetable side dish for my toddler, so will make it again for him.
